General Foot Care
We attend to all general podiatry needs, including:
- Trimming and filing of toenails;
- Removal of corns and calluses that form in areas of increased pressure;
- Treatment of fungal toenails that are thickened and discoloured;
- Treatment of plantar warts that commonly appear on the soles of the feet;
- Treatment of tinea (athlete’s foot) and excessively sweaty and/or odorous feet.
An athlete at any level will find it difficult to perform at their best with painful feet or poor foot posture that is potentially causing problems at the knees, hips and / or lower back. Our podiatrists provide a thorough assessment of your injury will be conducted to determine its cause, the best possible treatment and how to prevent it from happening again. All podiatrists at our foot centres have extensive knowledge and experience with the treatment of sports related foot injuries and the rehabilitation process.
Ingrown toenails occur when part of the nail (often a sharp spike) pierces the skin and causes the toe to become red, inflamed and very painful. It is important that an ingrown toenail is attended to by a podiatrist as soon as possible to have the spike of nail removed, and to prevent the toe from becoming infected and more inflamed.
If you have a persistent ingrown toenail, a small surgical procedure can be done that provides permanent removal of the piece of nail that is growing into the skin.
Foot orthoses are used to correct the posture of the feet and improve the alignment of the feet with the knees and hips, allowing the lower limb to function more efficiently while walking or running. Different types of orthotics are prescribed depending on the condition being treated, the severity of the person’s foot posture and the age of the person.
Our team are specialised in the assessment and development of foot orthoses. Our fully equipped onsite laboratory including improved technology such as the 3D scanning equipment and dynamic biomechanical assessment video ensures accurate and individualised orthotic prescription.
If you have either Type I or Type II diabetes, it is extremely important that you have a podiatrist assess your foot health on a regular basis to help prevent foot complications associated with diabetes from occurring. Such complications include loss of sensation and reduced blood flow to the feet, which can lead to diabetic ulceration if the feet are not properly cared for.
Children’s feet require special consideration as the growing foot provides a range of unique problems and challenges that are not seen in the adult foot. The young foot commonly encounters problems as it adapts to developmental changes in the positioning of the spine and lower limb.
Your child may be complaining of pain, or as a parent you may have concerns about your child’s walking pattern or foot development. Our podiatrists provide a thorough biomechanical assessment is conducted to help diagnose any paediatric foot problems that require treatment and possible ongoing management.
Myofascial dry needling is a treatment modality that is used by our podiatrists in conjunction with orthotic therapy or other soft tissue therapy. It is used to desensitise trigger points within a muscle belly of the lower limb that is causing discomfort or altered walking / running biomechanics.
We have a full stock of all sizes of Cam Walker immobilisation boots at both our clinics. The boot will be adequately fitted by one of our skilled podiatrists to ensure maximal comfort is achieved.
These are commonly used for patients who have a fractured bone or severe soft-tissue injury that requires a period of non-weight bearing to optimise the healing process.
Our Podiatrists provide a home visit service for people who are house bound or have difficulty transporting themselves to the clinic.
